The Drum runs industry survey to gauge average working hours and pressures facing marketing and communications professionals

Last week it was reported that an employee at Ogilvy & Mather Beijing died at his desk from a heart attack.

Such a story is uncommon within the industry, but it did make The Drum wonder about how hard professionals within the industry are working, with longer hours and more pressure to bring in clients a factor every company now faces.

As a result, we’d like to ask you to take a few minutes to fill out our anonymous questionnaire in an attempt to learn just how much stress marketing and communications professionals feel across the UK and how long an average working day is.

The Drum will report the results of the survey later this week.
